The Ohio State Buckeyes face off against the Michigan State Spartans this week and there is certainly a lot of controversy surrounding one of the Buckeyes’ offensive linemen. Star offensive tackle Taylor Decker had a few choice words about a certain Michigan State coach on Monday afternoon.
Jim Bollman coached at Ohio State from 2001-2011, a year before Decker began attending the school. Decker said on Monday that he wasn’t seriously recruited to the school, which led to him committing to Notre Dame at the time.
He didn’t switch his commitment until Urban Meyer came to the school and Bollman eventually left. Decker was asked about Bollman, who is now coaching tight ends with the Spartans, and it seems as though he has bit of a sore spot for Bollman.
Later on Monday night, Decker took to Twitter to express his feelings about his comments getting a lot of national attention. He said that his comments were more fueled by wanting to win rather than him having hard feelings for Bollman.
The Buckeyes take on the Spartans on Saturday in Columbus. It should be an electric environment when Decker and his team take the field.
